Best distance MBA, executive MBA and online MBA institute list in India

I got multiple inquiry from my blog readers on from where to pursue MBA in distance mode. As usual my reply is:
1.       Always prefer an evening MBA/ Executive MBA  from a reputed institute as employer still give more value to a well known university and colleges. Few of them are : FMS Delhi, JBIMS Mumbai, K J Somaiya Mumbai
2.       Do not opt PG diploma distance as it does not add any value. Avoid SCDL, Welingkar Distance programme so NMIMS distance PG Diploma, better opt their executive MBA
3.       Even if you want to distance learning degree, please prefer a central university first, then a good state and deemed university and do MBA within their jurisdiction only. Avoid private universities at any cost as most of them are selling degrees.
Please read following article


Before opting and PG Diploma in management, PGDBA, MBA and so on.. please spend good time to read following article

All distance learning PGDBAs are not MBA and they do not have corporate and academic value too



How to choose a distance learning MBA

Which institute is best for distance learning MBA

I hope these are sufficient. You will also find many useful posts including the best university for distance education, the worst university for distance education and so on.

You should also understand that AICTE approval is mandatory for even distance MBA in India. As of now AICTE and UGC have not allowed any universities to offer distance learning courses outside India.

Here, I am posting about ranking wise (for safety, acceptance, approval, controversy ) best MBA institutes in India

All other state universities except TGOU and Venkateshwara Open University



















I have not included following institutes
1.       All universities who are violating norms a lot and selling degrees like hot cake like Sikkim Manipal, ICFAI, Vinayak Mission
2.       I have not included the list of the university (44 deemed universities) who are blacklisted and case is in court
3.       I have not included non universities private institutes fooling students and selling PG Diplomas example SCDL, Welingkar
4.       I have not included private institutes and deemed universities whoare providing PG diplomas which are not equivalent to MBA
5.       I have not written about open universities in details as they are recognized, good in quality but private employer do not prefer them but I have written about them in the last. They are the best institute except TGOU, KSOU, Venkateshwara Open University. Government employee or those looking for government job should opt them.

I hope you will love this post too and find it useful

    ReplyDelete
  3. KSOU is a bad institute to opt. It has completely made commercialisation of education, violated norms and does not have approved from UGC DEB or AICTE

  4. Please do not opt. I have already clarified reason above and my this article is self explanatory

  6. Hello Sir,
    I have some queries related to Distance MBA. I have read your blogs; it’s very informative for readers. But still I want to know about Distance MBA and related to my career.
    I am Prashant Desai and had completed 3 years full time Technical Diploma in Computer Technology from Mumbai conducted by Board of Technical Education of Maharashtra (Year 1997).
    Due to some family & financial issues I cannot continue my education and joined one IT firm, immediately after diploma result. Now I have 18 years of experience in same IT firm, also got growth in position. To complete my graduation, in between in year 2000 to 2004 I had try in BCA from IGNOU. But along with job and because strict rules/regulation of IGNOU, I was failed to complete the BCA within time. Finally i have completed BCA from YCMOU this year 2015 (In distance education mode).
    Currently my job profile is like management kind of work. So to achieve a certain position in company or to apply for job in another company, I need some extra qualification like MCA or MBA. I also cleared ATMA MBA entrance exam by 67.82 percentile. I have shortlisted some universities/institute to do MBA in distance education mode like Bharati Vidyapeeth, IGNOU, YCMOU, NMIMS, Welingkar. Because full time or part mode is not suitable for my work time so i need distance education mode only.
    Request you to please suggest & guide me for above mentioned condition or suggest if any other way. Thanks for kind help.
    Prashant Desai
